Feels so familiar


One of the things I find interesting about travelling is how much I absorb without realizing that I'm absorbing it.

When we exited customs in Sydney, I was struck by how familiar the airport felt. Sure, I had been here before, but I hadn't really paid much attention on my way through.

Or, at least I didn't think I had.

I had.

This feels so familiar

I lost my phone


We landed in New Zealand early enough in the morning to be painful, bypassing doom, which isn't so painful, wandered through the airport, stood in a line, went through a security check, up a flight a stairs, and into a waiting room which was right above where we entered into the terminal. I was amused by all of the walking we did, commenting that we walked an awful long way to move 20 feet vertically.


Hello, New Zealand!

My excitement for my first time touching ground in New Zealand, even if we were merely passing through, was dashed, however, when I realized I lost my phone.

I remembered putting it in one of the zippered pockets in my backpack, but did not recall zipping it. I also remembered pulling other items out of that pocket, without recalling the phone was still in the pocket.

OSSPAC practice talk scheduled


I'll be speaking at OSSPAC in fewer than two weeks (9 days!). In order to get as much practice as I can in, I've scheduled a session at the Hacker Dojo, for next Tuesday September 7th, at 7:30pm. If you're interested in listening to my thirty minute talk (I KNOW! SO SHORT!), I'll feed you. Let me know you're coming by emailing or leaving a comment below. I'm thinking of bringing Baja Fresh.
